That's right, June 2 marks one of the sweetest (pun intended) days on the calendar.

Although there is a heartwarming story behind National Donut Day, it is still a foodie holiday (which means there is likely free food). There's really no bad way to eat a donut. But some of these fun holidays are genuinely worthwhile, like National Donut Day, which happens to be today.

Richmond's going to be on a sugar high tomorrow celebrating National Doughnut Day 2017.

Of course, none of the shops participating in the National Doughnut Day offers required that customers drive to the location.

"National Doughnut Day started in 1938 as a fundraiser for Chicago's Salvation Army".

Shipley Do-Nuts: Participating Shipley Do-nuts locations will give customers a free glazed donut with any purchase from 5 noon.

The doughnuts were delivered as part of a week of celebrating a tradition that dates to World War I, where Salvation Army volunteers made doughnuts for soldiers on the front lines.

Tim Hortons: The Canada and us -based coffee chain will offer a free doughnut with the purchase of coffee. If you purchase a dozen doughnuts you will receive an additional three free.

Buy a beverage and get a free classic donut.

Wawa: This National Doughnut Day deal is only for Wawa Rewards members.

Entenmann's: Doughnut lovers can enter a contest to win free Entenmann's donuts for a year.

Did we leave one off?

Hypnotic Donuts is giving away random boxes containing free gift cards and t-shirts, plus, of course, donuts, until closing time at 2 p.m. Receipts printed on Friday also will feature a coupon for a free half-dozen doughnuts when you purchase a half-dozen.
